Cyber-attacks targeting technology and telecommunications firms represent the most significant threat to their sensitive customer data and invaluable intellectual property. When successful, such attacks cost these firms dearly, not only in terms of immediate loss of revenue but also in the form of subsequent reputational damage.
Technology firms that provide digital services or house vast quantities of user information are particularly at risk, as demonstrated in the Uber breach that exposed the personal information of more than 25 million users. Regulations around personal data, such as GDPR, increasingly require technology firms to adopt a robust cyber defense strategy that can detect cyber-threats at an early stage.
Cyber-attacks aimed at technology firms with lucrative IP have also become a fact of life in the Information Age. Often perpetrated by nation-state actors with advanced capabilities, these attacks are now remarkably subtle and stealthy, with some of the latest examples b

Today’s IT departments face a unique set of challenges. On one hand, they have evolved from helpdesk support teams to key business enablers and must maintain increasingly complex IT landscapes while combatting significantly larger cyber security threats. On the other hand, they have to manage constant change with fewer resources and static, or minimally-increasing, budgets. As a result, many are looking to reduce costs while increasing efficiency and productivity. Some, in fact, are looking to Device as a Service, or DaaS.
If you're looking for more reasons to convince your CFOs that DaaS is a smart move, download the whitepaper to explore five big benefits of deploying a best-in-class DaaS solution.

The IoT is transforming the energy industry by eliminating tradeoffs between operation, SCADA systems, maintenance and new services for assets deployed in industrial and power facilities, buildings and across the grid.
When it comes to building the best IoT system for your business application, it’s vital to keep your use case and business requirements at the forefront of your technical design strategy. In the energy industry, accessing and collecting data at the edge from disparate, heterogenous, multi-site, fixed topologies and transferring that data efficiently to the cloud to perform analytics and action business decisions is still the greatest challenge. Mission-critical data collected from the edge is integral to energy facility operations and cannot be excluded or corrupted.

A CEO scans the competitive landscape, and decides it’s time to implement new strategies or to examine internal factors that are limiting growth. With buy-in from senior leadership, the company makes a significant investment in a months-long process designed to yield actionable insights. A few areas may be singled out for a deep-dive examination of how work is performed and where pain points exist. After interviewing employees at various levels, creating detailed documentation, and making recommendations, the company is ready to pilot changes, measure results, and roll out strategies to larger groups of stakeholders.
Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically. With these production-ready models, relative newcomers to AI/ML can generate reliable results and scale-up AI programs that anticipate and capitalize on trends, optimize supply chains, understand customer demand, match consumers with goods and services, and much more.

Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This paper presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a data center manager should expect from such a deployment.
Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which ,can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.
New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS).
Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors.
Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line?
A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.

The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational
changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and
high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud
security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport.
The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were
start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN
use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies
offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial,
Over the last couple of years SD-WAN technology has matured into a mainstream solution. Yet, the
most appropriate migration path is not always clear. While there are many considerations to
balance during a migration, the enduring benefit of an SD-WAN architecture is simplification:
branch design, data center design, routing, edge platform choices, security choices, management.
To ensure an understanding of the fundamental concepts, let’s quickly discuss the architecture and components of SD-WAN,
and then move on to cover the best practices of various aspects of an SD-WAN migration
